Lichens 'cause you like'em, and ducks because they have been a big subject in recent days. Here, the ducks were just moatin' and floatin'. It's raining today in Saint-Aignan, as it has been doing for a week or more now. We're supposed to have frequent rain showers for another week. I don't know when we'll ever get the vegetable garden planted.
P.S. I just went out in my waterproof gardening shoes and walked across the garden plot, which needs another tilling. It was like walking in quicksand. I sank down an inch or two wherever I stepped. It's going to take some time to dry out enough to be workable.
